Hello All,

I have been experiencing loss of power and have been getting code 00575 - manifold absolute pressure sensor.

I am in the process of replacing all vac hoses and checking that the routing/installation is correct.

Two questions;

Where should the ECU vac hose go to?
It is currently fitted to the EGR (the plastic linkage part on the upper side (vacuum control element?) not the waste gate)

Where should the hose from the right hand side of the intercooler go to?
It currently 'T's into the vac hose which connects the upper fitting on the N18 to the brake servo hose - near the non return valve.

PLEASE PLEASE can someone clarify for me as I have trawled all the posts on here/the internet and none provide the answer to these two hoses specifically.

1997 ACV 2.5TDI 102bhp with intercooler.

Thanks in advance

Happy Bank holiday. :ILU:

Anyone out there with an early ACV that could confirm where their ECU vac hose goes to please?

Cheers.

alancaddy, thanks for your response.

Looks like mine was installed incorrectly.

My understanding is that the MAP sensor is the one fitted to the top right side of the intercooler? My intercooler has a vac hose fitting directly below this sensor. Is that where my ECU hose should be fitted?

Cheers.

Is it possible to post photos of hose connections, which may help someone to see if they are connected correctly ?

Annoyingly I cannot post pictures. I'm guessing I need to be a paying member to do this? Unless someone can tell me otherwise? I am prepared to stump up the £10...

Cheers delboy10.



So I have changed my hoses to the config as seen in the pic and the van is running much better.

How does this compare to how you guys are set up?

Thanks all for your time.
